Decent idea that gets bogged down quickly.

I now know more about wolves than I ever really wanted to. Don't get me wrong, the story has its moments but those moments were usually embedded among long monologs from the main character constantly speculating about the wolf's motivation for doing ANYTHING. It became very distracting through in a 19 hour listen, and gave me the impression it was mostly filler as it had little bearing on the plot. Mr. Collin's style was fitting for the main character, but his idiosyncratic way of narrating always made everyone seem agitated and out of breath. I finished the book not really caring about the characters or whether there would be a sequel.

From Geek to Great

This is a sort of coming of age novel. The narrator, an introverted social scientist, is transformed by the world around him. As society crumbles around him he rises to the challenge. Really good story. Great characters. Terrific character development.

There are lessons here, in how to prepare and in how to be human.
